What a difference a day makes.

Such a true statement, I've been so very busy with baby bird that I didn't have time to blog as I wanted to last night! This post is about the changes we've been enduring here on the home front & my serious addiction to reality television!

As far as changes, after baby bird's 1 year appt we were instructed to wean him from Similac Sensitive formula to Whole Milk.  Yesterday I made a special trip to purchase our first half gallon of organic whole milk for baby bird, well that is kinda where the trouble started.  He had his first half and half bottle for lunch & went down for nap, well he woke up around 3pm & boy was he fussy, clingy, irritable, & antsy in the pantsy! He was just fussy until about 6, which is when he began to scream wide open, so I put him in his tub(which he absolutely adores!) & this didn't even cheer him up, he just stood up, screamed, & reached out for me.  Needless to say we were in & out of the tub quickly last night, he fell asleep, & slept all night(a very much welcomed new trait!)

This morning when he woke up he was the happiest little boy, talking, jumping, dancing & I thought he was healed overnight. Well, turns out it's not that easy; I fed him breakfast & not 2 minutes later he upchoked all of it on himself, I felt so bad for him. I called his Dr & she returned my call telling me that we should buy Lactaid & switch him over gradually, so I'll try that tomorrow & hopefully all will go well!

I tried something totally new this morning, since baby bird has been sleeping through the night (8:30p-7:00a) for the first time since his birth, I also have been getting an awesome amount of welcomed uninterrupted sleep! I woke up around 6:30 this morning & decided to get up & get going with my *networking* as my friend & I call it; just getting my name out in bloggy blog world! I felt amazing today, I got so much more accomplished & even: wait for it:: Worked Out!!! It was just a cardio dance express video, but it's so much better than sitting on my fanny watching reality tv, which brings me to my next topic: Realty Television

In all of it's glory, it can be: cheesy, raunchy, tasteless, hilarious, intruding, but absolutely amazing at the same time.  Big bird(hubby) & I disagree on this topic, but I'm just not going to change! I love it, all types: cooking, lifestyle, home improvement; you name it, I'm probably watching it! I have a few friends who mildly share my love for a few shows: big brother, toddlers & tiaras, extreme couponing, real housewives, teen mom...the list goes on & on....

well that's been my past few days, hope everyone else is having an amazing week!

  1. hello...thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm following you back!

  2. Reality TV Rocks!!! I would say it is the majority of the TV, the other shows being reruns of old shows (Gilmore Girls, Full House, Etc), or Preschool tv. In fact right now I am watching Winter Wipeout!! Cant wait for Teen Mom2 Tuesday!!! :0)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and following :)

  6. isn't it amazing when they FINALLY start sleeping through the night? henry didn't figure this out until he was almost nine months old and even now (he'll be a year soon) we have occasional bad nights. but OH MY, so nice when they do sleep. it really makes a world of difference.

    i don't think i ever watched as much reality tv as i do now that henry is here. i think it's just a nice, mindless way to relax. i mean, as a mom your constantly thinking and going and doing. it's fun to have something to watch without having to think too hard about it!
